The 230 private acres known as Little Scrub Island and Big Scrub Island represent a unique opportunity in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to add a health and wellness component to one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive 5-star resort and residential communities. As the first new luxury resort to be built in the BVI in over 15 years, Scrub Island features a world-class spa and is the future home of Bambu MedSpa™. The clinic will provide the region’s best outpatient dermatology services. Its primary goal is to offer a clinical model for dermatological services and medical spa procedures utilizing a medical grade product line in a resort setting.
Medicinal spas as an industry grew 75 percent between 2006 and 2016. The growth of aesthetic medicine, medical spas and cosmeceuticals are largely attributed to the most affluent consumers in the market today – baby boomers. These consumers already spend time vacationing in the Caribbean. Though baby boomers remain these industries’ primary target, trends point to an emerging market particularly with the addition of more men being concerned about their appearance and an expanding younger, more diverse and ethnic consumer.
Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina – a member of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection – offers a stunning choice of ocean view accommodations of suites, villas and residences all providing the ultimate in tranquility and luxury.
